My children are praying(voicing loud complaints) I will turn the air conditioner back on this evening. But the the air is supposed to cool down and there is no humidity. I am tired of living without fresh air and I am scared to death for my next electric bill. So we can be a little warm this evening……truthfully who is going to melt? I definitely win the witch award for today after waking with pink eye and had to visit the doctor instead of the swimming pool.
Lucky could care less if the AC is on or off. He just wants someone to throw this rock so he can find it. So maybe having the windows opened and listening to the night sounds will make a wonderful peaceful evening.
I am enjoining a wonderful book….Sabbath
Finding Rest, Renewal and Delight in our Busy Lives by wayne Muller
"The more our life speeds up, the more we feel weary, overwhelmed and lost. Despite our good hearts and equally good intentions, our life and work rarely feel light, pleasant or healing. Instead, as it all piles endlessly upon itself, the whole experience of being alive begins to melt into one enormous obligation. It becomes the standard greeting everywhere: "I am so busy." We say this to one another with no small degree of pride, as if our exhaustion were a trophy, our ability to withstand stress a mark of real character. The busier we are, the more important we seem to ourselves and, we imagine, to others. To be unavailable to our friends and family, to be unable to find time for the sunset (or even to know that the sun has set at all), to whiz through our obligations without time for a single mindful breath — this has become the model of a successful life."
